Jesus, Our Saviour!
Jesus, our Saviour often prayed, for wisdom from on high,
Beyond the world He saw displayed, beyond His questions
Because His Father knew all things, with love to share it
Because Christ was the King of Kings... God's finest
So if our Lord prayed day and night, how much should we
Discerning thoughts and truths are right, discerning what to
Just think of knowledge God could give, directions where to
The righteous ways each one should live, God's love to
Jesus, our Saviour faced the Cross, there was no other way,
No great escape from shame or loss, but on that Cross to
And with the prophecies fulfilled, He knew His time to die,
The judgement done, God's anger stilled, with Mary there to
Man's sins dismissed when God could waive such horror and
To one believing thief Christ gave the gift of Paradise!
The Saviour left His tomb behind, triumphant over death...
The Man who died for all Mankind, Jesus of Nazareth!

The Messiah And The
When Jesus spoke to those nearby,
He showed authority,
Explaining God has reasons why,
Fulfilled through Calvary...
Appointing mentors one-by-one,
As leaders men could trust,
So Christians learn to serve God's Son
In each new way they must...
That's why each mentor blesses those
Who heed the good advice,
Reminding them that Jesus rose
With all grace He supplies...
With nothing lacking for Good News,
For Gentile and for Jew,
Enough to make sure each can choose,
Including me... and you...
Christ's blessings need God's guiding hand,
A word of power said,
Such that God shows what He has planned...
To even raise the dead...
That's why the Church can grow and grow,
Beyond our hopes and prayers,
Like Heaven's glory meant to glow,
For nothing else compares!
